All, Some or None: Synchronous or Asynchronous: Creating a climate to meet your students’ needs – #SWDE2018

Cox, Trish; Schwartz, Rachel; Marquart, Matthea S.

As Online MSW programs emerge, there are a variety of methods in the online teaching world that direct programs in how they approach the synchronous vs asynchronous conversation. It is important to consider selecting a format that is the right fit for the school, faculty and the desired student population. The panel will present case studies from three online programs (sharing experiences from asynchronous, synchronous and a blended asynchronous-synchronous program), explore the pros and cons of these options, and discuss the debates that their programs explored to come to their decision in their models they chose for their three Online MSW Programs. This interactive panel will include opportunities for participants to ask questions and share their own challenges and solutions.
